The only time I've ever hacked a game to get Pokemon was to get a few legendaries in Black that I couldn't get otherwise (Arceus, Genesect, Darkrai, etc.) I didn't hack them to be at level 100, or to have certain stats or moves; I only wanted to get them somehow because it didn't seem fair that the game developers wouldn't let me. As a matter of principle, I don't hack under normal circumstances.

I'm not scared of hacked Pokemon, I just get really annoyed with them at times. If someone wants to hack themselves a Legendary or event Pokemon that's fine with me, heck, even teams of Pokemon are okay, as long as they're "legitimately" hacked. The 4 teams I use for competitive battling on Black are all hacked (I <3 you Pokegen) but their stats, moves, and abilities are all still "legal". What makes me ragequit is when I'm battling someone who clearly has cheap, "illegal" Pokemon, like a Jolteon with Volt Tackle or No Guard Hypnotizing Gengar.

Spending hours EV training and breeding just seems pointless to me when I can make an entire team in around 25 minutes, the fact that I hack my Pokes doesn't mean I love 'em any less or that I'm not as good of a battler, I'm just lazy :p

You hit the nail right on the head, If you "hack" a pokemon it should NOT be cheap like making your pokemon's sats be like 500 or giving crobat Hydro Cannon. The problem is that people think that most "hackers" do that, when I use action replay to get pokemon, the pokemon are normal. In fact I really do not consider them "hacked" because they are exactly the same as normal pokemon, when you get a pokemon with AR you modify the pokemon that show up in the wild.

I personally avoid hacks because even if most reports of game-breaking ones are exaggerated, I'd prefer to keep my game clean.

I'm okay with others using them so long as they don't try to pass them off as legit in battles or trades. However, obviously fake hacks (shinies with perfect IVs and illegal moves and abilities...) are simply ridiculous.
